New Theatre

With a seating capacity of almost 2000, The New is Oxford's premier theater, offering a wide range of shows from opera and ballet to modern musicals, tribute bands and popular comedy acts. Annual visits are made by nationally-acclaimed touring companies including the English National Ballet, Glyndebourne Touring Opera, the Welsh National Opera and the Rambert Dance Company. The theater is well laid out, service between acts is usually rapid and courteous, and there are good views of the stage from all seats.

George Street, Oxford, United Kingdom, OX1 2AG
Jericho Tavern

For the party animals of Oxford, it's like a ritual to visit The Jericho Tavern. The fact that in the past the famous bands like Supergrass and Ride have frequented this popular haunt and the first gig by Radiohead was staged here, is enough to attract alternative rock music lovers to this place. At this chilled out haunt, one can lounge around the well-stocked bar and the gastro pub while enjoying live music. Or simply relax in the garden patio devouring the delicious array of food served to you. The Jericho also is the perfect venue to host various activities and private parties.

56 Walton Street, Oxford, United Kingdom, OX2 6AE
Sheldonian Theatre

Round buildings usually stand out from the surrounding architecture, and the Sheldonian is no exception. Visitors can't help but wonder what goes on inside, not least because the "Emperors' heads" on the wall on Broad Street give the place such an imposing air. Primarily, the Sheldonian is a university building, used for major meetings and ceremonies. At other times, it is used as a concert venue. The theater is an excellent setting, particularly for classical recitals, although the tiered seating can be slightly uncomfortable. This is a historically important building as it was the first major one to be designed by Sir Christopher Wren, who at the time was only 31 and a professor of astronomy. The design is based on the Marcellus Theater in Rome and the theater is named after Archbishop Sheldon (University Chancellor and Archbishop of Canterbury) who paid for its construction.

The Bullingdon

This very popular pub that is also one of the city's main music venues is a major nightspot. The pub/club has a back room featuring various genres of music, depending on the night you visit. The pub also has a big screen available for sports fixtures.

162 Cowley Road, Oxford, United Kingdom, OX4 1UE
O2 Academy Oxford

Previously known as the Carling Academy Oxford, O2 Academy Oxford is one of the most important live concert venues in Oxford. Visitors of this unique local venue will not only enjoy the concerts of newly discovered indie bands, but also experience nightlife in one of the most emblematic clubs in Oxford.

190 Cowley Road, Oxford, United Kingdom, OX4 1UE
Blenheim Palace

Blenheim Palace has been the home of the Dukes of Marlborough since 1704, when Queen Anne gave a ruined royal manor and dukedom to John Churchill as a gift for his victory at the battle of Blenheim on the Danube. Winston Churchill also happened to be born here - look out for the Churchill exhibition, which includes the bed he was born on, and many personal belongings, including books, photographs and letters. His tomb is in the graveyard of St Martin's church in nearby Bladon. The palace also sometimes plays host to major concerts.

Lower Park Street, Woodstock, United Kingdom, OX20 1PX
